What to recycle in WI - (Visit DNR website)
In Wisconsin, you cannot put many recyclable or compostable items in the trash. Wisconsin's recycling law bans the landfilling or incineration of these materials to conserve valuable resources. These disposal bans went into effect in several stages, beginning in the 1990s. Two new bans took effect in 2010 and 2011, covering electronics and used oil filters. Note that some local ordinances may require additional materials to be recycled.
Many local recycling programs and drop-off centers accept additional materials for recycling, so be sure to check with your local program or recycling hauler for a complete list of what can be recycled.
